Default Center Console Rear Vents

Hey all,

I just got my new vents, the ones that go in the center console for the rear passangers.
(The ones with the car had cracks in them when I bought it)
(This is my 97SSEi)

Just wondering how the console comes apart and what'* the easiest way to get in there to replace them.

Thanks

according to the manual you can pull them straight out without removing the console. They dont show much detail here. Its a bit involved if you have to remove the console, shifter removal, vent actuator etc. I'll let someone who has already removed this to comment.

bud, they just pop out. just wriggle them free, one at a time. they are very easy to work with. I replaced mine with ones from a 97SSEi with tan ones. Just pull from the corner where you turn to adjust it. Pull towards you and replace the same way!!!

SWEET!!!! I was really worried I had to take the whole (or most) of the console out...

man trust me, you dont wanna go there. It aint to bad but very time consuming(the console extraction)! The vents are the easiest part of the console to change. I once had to take my console lid assembly off and replace with one out that same 97SSEi so my latch would close and i would have a cup holder. That was a bugger.( Your project should take you under 6 minutes to do this!!! Good luck and let us know how it goes!!!!
